The 2012 CMT Music Awards was held at the Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday, June 6 in Nashville. This year's awards were hosted by country crooner Toby Keith and "Gossip Girl" actress Kristen Bell. The best of the best in country music came out to celebrate some of the most talented musicians in the business. This year, the new and not-so-new talent from "American Idol" took part in this special event and they were looking hot!

Carrie Underwood

This girl was the hit of the night but as always, she was humbled by it all. The "Blown Away" singer sparkled in a high-neck sequined mini dress. It sure showed off her well-toned legs. The black sexy heels she wore completed the outfit. The 29-year-old was joined by the man in her life, hubby Mike Fisher. She took home the award for Video of the Year for "Good Girl." Ms. Underwood also won Collaborative Video of the Year that she did with Brad Paisley for "Remind Me." Her performance of "Good Girl" was one of the highlights of the night. This blond cutie has turned out to be one of the most successful and high-profile winners of "American Idol."

Jordin Sparks

This season six winner was princess-like in a coral chiffon, off-the-shoulder Kevan Hall gown. She showed off her newly toned figure in this waist hugging creation. The 22-year-old was also one of the many presenters of the evening.

Lauren Alaina

The runner-up on season 10 of "American Idol" chose a simple black dress with a bit of sparkle and charm to it. She brightened up the outfit with blue strappy sandals. The 17-year-old kept track of the CMT tweets of the night and performed her catchy tune, "Georgia Peaches." The video for this song was also in the running for USA Weekend Breakthrough Video of the Year.

Scotty McCreery

This country boy walked the red carpet in his usual denim attire. The 18-year-old had on jeans and a matching denim jacket with a casual red shirt underneath. He even wore real cowboy boots! This red-haired cutie is always a big hit with the girls. Who wouldn't love this guy after he croons his hit song, "The Trouble with Girls?" Oh yeah, he also won the award for the USA Weekend Breakthrough Video of the Year. Not bad for this recent high school graduate!

Casey James

Remember Casey James? He was the guy with the gorgeous curly blond locks on season nine of "American Idol." He was looking quite dapper on the red carpet in a maroon dinner jacket, jeans and snazzy black dress shoes. The 30-year-old performed his new song, "Crying on a Suitcase" as the lead to a commercial break. He sounded great!

Colton Dixon

This rocker idol was all decked out in black as he enjoyed just being at the awards. He had his signature spiky blond hair and a big smile on his face the whole night. The 20-year-old took to the stage alongside his good friend, Skylar Lane as a presenter.

Skylar Lane

This country girl was pretty in a metallic gray dress. The outfit was short and strapless with a long matching train flowing in the back. This waist hugging dress fit her personality perfectly. She completed her outfit with cute matching sandals and a huge ring on her finger. The 18-year-old singer seemed thrilled and honored to be among the best musicians that country music has to offer.
